To most of you tonight is Halloween but for some of us, October 31st is what we call Reformation Day. This is the day in 1517 when Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door of a church in Wittenburg and though he may never have intended it, sparked of a flame that would spread and ignite the church.
A friend posted this video today, I’ve never been a fan of Spoken Word but this one I like. It’s a little dramatic but beautifully written and performed. The historical situation was far more complex, as were Luther’s motivations but it’s a great video and it’ll give you the gist of why this is Reformation Day for us, a far more worthy cause than Halloween.
